Has anyone ever dealt with this style, and how would I go about adding lowering blocks?

IsoMount. you're SOL I believe... convert to the earlier non-IsoMount.

I forget precisely what's under there, but I recall switching mine back and forth (an autocross car, 79 Spirit) that the spring center bolt is different.

When I did it I made the lowering blocks actually a plate that had holes for the u-bolts to pass through them. I only went down 1/2 inch .

Wouldn't having lower leaf springs be the preferred method?
